How do companies afford Tosca? How do testers and QA teams justify the expense to their managers/company?
The only testing software I've used is Selenium; for online app testing. Selenium is free
Our team is starting to build a Desktop application. For Desktop testing, it appears that the safest most reliable testing frameworks (testing languages, libraries) are not free. I understand and am okay with this fact.
However, I am dumbfounded by the price of some of the software. This is much different than the world of online app testing.
How is it that I don't hear more conversation about expense and justification of expense? I was quoted around $11,000 to $15,000 for Tosca per year. Please, how are you convincing your company (and yourself and manager) that this is a worthwhile investment? So many companies use it; but how with it being so expensive? I have been searching a long time for answers to this question. Not sure where else to go to ask. If there is a better place for this discussion, put the link below.
Are you using it for something other than end-to-end UI testing and basic functional UI testing?
